'Security Wall' Palestine 2004

Via Dolorosa
The 'way of sorrow'. Said to be the route taken by Jesus on his way to crucifixion through the streets of the Old City of Jerusalem. The route is marked by 14 Stations of the Cross depicting events along the journey. The route begins at the Lions Gate and ends at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The stations are marked by numbered plaques. Tourism and troubles have blighted the route.
